Hi, I am Zakary W. (That’s me in the middle just in case there was any confusion.)


I moved to Colorado in 2001 and my daughter was six weeks old and I’ve been here ever since, I love this place. I had technically never set foot in Colorado before that, so I’m pretty stoked it worked out.

I have two children. My daughter is fourteen and my son is seven. My daughter was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes in 2011, five days before her tenth birthday. I blog about T1 Diabetes sometimes and most of the times I don’t, but I will always answer any questions anyone might have. I’m not a diabetes expert by any means, but I am happy to share what works for us.


I was chosen to speak at BlogHer’s 2013 Voices Of The Year keynote and read a piece about what is probably the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me in my adult life. Or my entire life.

I am a full-time mother, a part-time bartender a Program Manager for BlogHer Publishing Network, Listen To Your Mother Denver 2013 and 2014 Director, and an expert regarding stain removal.

This is my blog. Thanks for playing.
